Digitising Our Ancient Dinosaurs: Museums In The 21st Century

LEVEL 2, THEATRE, QUEENSLAND MUSEUM

Summary

Combining state of the art technology with ancient artefacts, Queensland Museum’s digital initiative Project DIG brings to life some of the magnificent creatures that roamed the landscape of Queensland nearly 40,000 years ago.

Queensland Museum’s Senior Curator of Palaeontology Dr Scott Hocknull, Digital Initiatives Manager David Pyle, and Digital Content expert Donna Miller will share their unparalleled expertise to ensure the ancient knowledge held in Queensland’s State Collection is preserved for future generations.

Supported by Project DIG, a partnership between Queensland Museum Network, BHP and BMA.

The Winton dinosaur trackways

One of the best dinosaur trackway sites in the world is preserved at Lark Quarry, 110 km southwest of Winton, central western Queensland.
